A tour of the hippies? I bet that was fun. "Which ones are the men?" was probably often heard on those buses.

My parents also had the Petula Clark album with Downtown so it wasn't all Janis.

I think my father was into the louder stuff. He also had an 8-track in his office and kept a second copy of Pearl there, but he only played it after hours. I think he understood that it wasn't the best way to build a practice. Or did he? I am now remembering that the little chairs he had in the kids area of the waiting room were plush green mushrooms. Gonna have to ask mom about this.

Here is another artist that could be heard coming from the phonograph. Actually this one is also kind of cool:

In a lot of way this as quintessentially the perfect 60's song as any . The real 60's, the one we actually lived in, was much more this, than hippies, LSD, or the Beatles . When people mention the 60's , they usually are thinking 68-69 .
We had an 8 track of the "South of the Border" album .

Exactly. What my mom always said around hippies was, "I'd like to cut their hair and give them a bath!" So I'd smile in order to let the hippies know I liked them. (I didn't want them to feel bad.) And the best part: being warned not to eat ANY sugar cubes in San Francisco, as a result of which, we (brother and I) gobbled down all the sugar cubes in the hotel. Somehow nothing exciting was in the sugar cubes at the Fairmont.
